Thunder Lake Narrow Gauge ~by Harvey Huston
Thunder Lake Narrow Gauge
"...the story of colorful but little known narrow gauge railroad system comprised of the Robbins Railroad, the last narrow gauge common carrier in the Middle West, and the logging railroad of its parent corporation, the Thunder Lake Lumber Co. From 1893 to 1941,  the Narrow Gauge hauled logs, piling, pulpwood, potatoes and lumberjacks among the lakes and forests of the Wisconsin north woods between Rhinelander and the Eagle Chain of Lakes area.  Profusely illustrated with rare photographs of a railroad and logging operations of a bygone era. "

Timber ~ by Ralph W. Andrews - Timber
"The photographs alone in this absorbing book will instantly transport the reader into this former world. Here was the greatest stand of Douglas fir timber in existence and here was labor for the Poles, Finns, Swedes and Norskies lured out of the Midwest to convert the mammoth trees into the lumber that helped build the West Coast cities. .... Here are many nostalgic scenes showing high climbers, fallers balanced on high springboards, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroad, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroads to flumes, rivers and salt water, early donkey engines, railroads on steep grades, logging camps as well as devastating fires."  ~ Amazon.com

Trains, Tracks, and Tall Timber ~ by Matt Coleman
Trains, Tracks, and Tall Timber
"
The story of how it got from the forest to the consumer is an exciting tale of an industry and the railroads that serve it.  From buzzing saws in the forest to the hustle and bustle of your local lumber yard, to the thunder of high-speed printing presses, the forest products industry has long captivated the imagination. First, you'll see what logging was like when steam was king and highways were few and far between. Loggers lived and worked a rough and tumble life deep in the woods. Their tales have found their way into North American folklore.

Next, you'll travel deep into the forests where logs are harvested. You'll see growling machinery hauling raw logs from the forests to trackside log reloads and pulpwood landings. You'll chase loaded log trains and watch as they're unloaded at mills. Then, you'll tour the mills where logs become lumber and paper.

Finally, learn how to add mills to a model railroading layout. Get tips from industry insiders and railroaders. Learn how to add these buildings to a layout using easy-to-build structure and rolling stock kits. Equipment, building, rolling stock and realistic operations are all covered. " ~ Amazon.com
